Shiber is the tongue of Benshira Humans, a desert dwelling race in Eyktol, found primarily in Wadrass. The written form of Shiber is fully developed with an alphabet system as opposed to pictographic.





Shiber is a somewhat slurred sounding language with an innate rhythm. Outsiders note the common use of the "Sh", "Ah", "El" and "Y" sound. Consonants are often paired for unique almost glottal sounds. While the language seems rushed when spoken, it has a startling beauty and liveliness when sung.
